    EndGem Speed 3•
    GEM Stainless Coated #9

    The last of my trio of EndGem shaves, the most aggressive 3dot. Which definitely lives up to its description, as the alum and Williams gave a very pleasant tingle.
    One other thing that I forgot to mention is the lovely scraping toast sound that the EndGem produces.

    Be happy everyone!

    First shave with a recently acquired ER lather catcher. I have another one but it has a damaged blade stop. This one has good blade stops and came with a nice handle with the stopping attachment that inserts into the end. The shave was quite nice. The Schick N is also a new acquisition and was loaded with a vintage twin blade. Both razors performed beautifully.

    Cold Water Rinse
    Arko Shave Soap
    SlimGem Silvertip Badger
    1907 Gem Jr. Lather Catcher
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    CWR
    Vegetal AS

    The Arko Shave Soap lathered well with the SlimGem Silvertip Badger. Two passes and touch ups with the 1907 Gem Jr. Lather Catcher razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Vegetal AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.

    Blackland Sabre w/2 dot plate, Gem ptfe stainless blade, shave 2

    New acquisition I am trying out. First impression this is no Gem Micromatic open comb which is the razor I used yesterday. This is much milder shave but it is somewhat efficient though not efficient enough to produce a full BBS finish under the chin. Rest of the face is BBS.

    Trying out 2 new acquisitions today. The Schick I1 and the M2. Both razors shaved quite nicely. Also wearing the Momentum Base Layer today. Such a cool watch.
